How would you describe your interest in photography? Or, are you involved with photography in some other form?

Love taking pictures and then reworking them to realize my image in software. Probably high end amateur with some sales. I am an active member of the Charlottesville Camera Club.

What type of photography do you enjoy the most?

Almost anything except studio and models. Scenery, architecture and children. Reflections--love anything with a reflections. My one granddaughter is a dancer. Her recitals provide endless opportunities.

Do you use a DSLR , a film, point-and-shoot camera or a combination?

After using an SLR film camera for years, I had been using a high end point and shot for the past 10 years. I then got a low end Nikon D3100 DLSR. A lovely camera, but I moved up to a D7000 because of it greater sensitivity and faster burst mode. But am not giving up my 12X Panasonic which is very portable, good quality, and enormous range on the lens.

What would you like to get out of our organization?

Further develop my photographic and appreciation skills. Some of the workshops and group photoshoots have delivered exactly what I want. The adrenaline shootoffs are fun and always challenging; they help get me out of my comfort zone. The club is a very positive experience.

A lot of work goes into planning these events. Can we depend on you to show up to an event if you RSVP?

Yes. Whatever I agree to on the final assignments, I will do. I have volunteered faithfully for years with the Virginia Film Festival.


I am a professor of chemistry at UVA I hike, ski, bike and have a third degree black belt in Taekowndo. I am a New Mexican and my web page is devoted to things to do in the Southwest and my movie reviews at http://people.vir...­

What Jim D. is saying about this Meetup Group

In spite of the announcement problem I think we got a better turn out than usual.
